What is Reiki?
"Reiki is Love
Love is Wholeness
Wholeness is Balance
Balance is wellbeing
Wellbeing is free from Disease"
Dr. Mikao Usui
Reiki, pronounced Ray Key, literally translates into ”Universal Life Force Energy”.
What is energy? Everything is energy. This is something science has proven time and time again. Everything from your food, your body, a chair, a tree, sound has energy, our senses don’t detect the energetic movements of things like food and tables because they vibrate slowly and at a low frequency, but they’re still made up of energy.
Prana, Chi, Ki, Life Force, ‘The Force’. Every culture has a way of describing a kind of universal energy.
We actually notice and talk about energy all the time; it’s a very normal part of our vocabulary. That feeling when you walk into a room and – before you’ve even seen anyone – you can tell that the people in there have just had an argument:’there was such a bad vibe’. Where does this sensation, this energy come from? Intangible and even inexplicable, but just as we can't see air or oxygen it does not mean it is not present.
A reiki healing treatment is a non invasive form of hands on or off energy healing system. We all have this energy within us–it simply gets awakened through a process called a Reiki attunement which your facilitator would have gone through to be able to channel the Universal Life Force energy into a person, thus promoting healing on the spiritual, mental, emotional and physical levels.
Healing is a way of actively doing something that has a positive effect on the mind and body; something that helps you to ‘regain health’. This might be through relaxation therapies which help to relieve stress and tension, by building up your body’s natural strength and immunity or increasing your energy levels.
Energy healing comprises of techniques that clear the blocks in your energy flow, positively transform your life and helps you achieve your optimum state of wellbeing.
It is a totally natural and holistic system, where the energy goes to where the problem is in the body. Even if the practitioner just holds the client's shoulders, the energy will still search out the problem areas.

What happens in a Reiki session and how can I prepare for it?
Before starting we will go through a few simple questions such as if you have any aches that may become uncomfortable whilst lying down or go over if you have had surgery recently. This is a good time to be ask for anything that will add to your comfort, such as additional support under your knees or a blanket. This is your special time and I am here to to help you feel comfortable.
The Reiki session is offered to a fully clothed recipient who is normally lying down or sitting comfortably. During the Reiki session the practitioner may place her hands very lightly on or if the client prefers not to be touched then the practitioner will hover hands above the body and channels the healing energy.
After the session it is recommend drinking plenty of water to continue releasing and healing.
Enjoy the after affects of the session and follow your guidance as to when you need another one.
To get the most out of your Reiki energy healing session I recommend the following:
Try to minimize stimulants (caffeine, nicotine) or alcohol and heavy foods about three to five hours before and after your treatment.
Arrive promptly to ensure you receive your full session time.
Use the restroom before your session so that you are able to lie down comfortably.
Receiving Reiki is a wonderfully passive experience. Don't try to relax, just let the Reiki relax you. Your state will shift quite naturally as the session proceeds. Meanwhile feel free to daydream, enjoy the music, or simply observe your breath or the sensations of the therapy.
Reiki Distant Healing
Reiki healing can be performed regardless of any location, environment or circumstances. Reiki is such a powerful energy that can travel across time and space.
Prior to the treatment I will discuss your ailments or anything that you would like to work on and heal. Then I will book a time for the session.
During the distant healing session you will be asked to find a quiet environment where you will not get disturbed and where you can make yourself comfortable. I will then connect with your energy and the session may start. A distant healing session will be given the same amount of focus as if you were directly with me in a room. The session will last approximately 45 minutes.
During the distant healing session, you might feel sensations, have visions, see colours or feel heat or cold, exactly the same as if you were receiving a direct Reiki healing.
Once the healing session is complete, you may want to relax for a while and drink some water. Later, I will follow up the healing session and will review your experiences and anything that you were feeling or encountered during the treatment.
Distant Reiki session is usually given in situations when your circumstances do not allow you to have a direct session, or you would prefer to be in your own environment.
